    Good morning DDCM fans and followers!

    How about another DDCM desk PC update?

    We can start off with a glamour shot of the leak testing we did.

    One of the first things we did while waiting for all the paint to dry was to finish making our custom sleeved extensions.

    Once the paint dried we immediately set to installing our components and figuring out our cable paths.

    Then we prepped and installed our painted NexXxos 360 radiators which followed with fans, tubes and everything else. Once it was all connected we started our leak testing.

    Until next time, Happy Modding!

    Good morning DDCM fans and followers!

    How about another DDCM desk PC update?

    First we will start with the winner of my contest. I wanted people on social media to design a dragon and flames to paint on the top of the desk before I seal it up. Here’s the winner. I loved the shape of the dragon head. The flames will need a little cleaning.

    Ok, back to the desk. We took this picture while it was night time and during the leak test.

    The next morning we went to paint the top of the desk…. And ended up spending a few hours cleaning the carpet instead DOH!

    Several hours later I recruited my daughters help and we drained the desk of all the distilled water and filled it with the Mayhems Red Aurora liquid.

    After the paint dried on the desk top, I attached it in place and took this teaser picture for social media.

    After all the cable management was done and I verified it was working great, I took this semi finished picture. All that’s left is to install the windows and to get the vinyl lettering in place. And YES, I know it’s a small old monitor for this massive project. haha.

    I hope everyone has enjoyed this so far and I will update with final pictures on a real camera once I get to the last couple things done. And hopefully by then I’ll have a better monitor too.
    Until next time, Happy Modding!

    So we needed a shot of the desk to put on our new business cards, so….. I figured I wanted to share with you. We are also in talks to do a hardware upgrade if the vendor approves it.

    Of course, none of this would’ve been possible without the amazing sponsors!

    The business cards came out pretty snazzy too!
